Simonds Catholic College is an all boys secondary school across two campuses in the inner city of Melbourne. The school provides a safe and supportive learning environment in which each boy is individually known and is challenged to be all he can be. The excellent facilities mean that the school is able to offer a broad and exciting curriculum within a small setting. The close proximity to the beautiful St Mary’s Church at West Melbourne, and St Brigid’s Church in Fitzroy North, means that boys are provided with frequent opportunities to reflect, pray and celebrate the Sacraments in an inspiring and historical religious setting.

Simonds has a Year 7 to 10 campus in West Melbourne and a recently redeveloped specialist senior VCE campus in Fitzroy North. This site is located at the corner of Nicholson Street and Alexandra Parade, and is well served by public transport. The VCE Campus site has been completely renovated and re-furbished to provide excellent learning facilities for senior students. VCE classes were introduced
in 2010.

Curriculum: In Year 7 compulsory core subjects are Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Italian, Japanese, Humanities, Science, ICT, Art, Systems Technology, Product Design and Technology, Food Studies and Health and Physical Education. iPads were introduced in Year 7, 8 and 9 in 2013. An extensive range of VCE and VET subjects are available for senior secondary students.

Sport: Boys participate in a wide variety of sports and leisure activities and there are swimming programs to give all boys confidence in the water. As members of the Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) there is weekly fixtured sport along with major carnivals for athletics and swimming.

Extra-curricular activities: Debating, chess and sport are available. Boys experience the bush through a camp program, which gives them the knowledge and skills to live in and enjoy such an environment.

Student welfare programs: As the school is small, students are treated as individuals in an atmosphere of concern and friendliness between staff and students.
